Publisher's Summary

The War of the Rebellion is over, and the members of the American Gun Club, bored with inactivity, look around for a new project. At last they have it: "We will build the greatest projectile the world has ever seen and make the moon our 38th state!"When From the Earth to the Moon was published in 1865, it was regarded as pure fantasy. Who could imagine a rocket that would carry men and animals through space? Today, like so many of Jules Verne's prophecies, space travel is a reality. Here's a fun adventure story that shows how Verne, with foresight that is at times almost eerily accurate, envisioned a trip to the moon.

While the writing is fantastic, the story really leaves the leader disappointed. A lot of build up for a very brief and unfulfilling ending.

Longer than needed and boring.

I bought this book after my wife recommended it. After listening to most of the book and never getting to that part "where it gets better" I was very dissapointed. After explaining the plot and story to my wife she then said that she might have listened to a child's abridged version of the book. This book is repetitive, the reader sounds like a tired old grandfather. Do not recommend.
